TV Shows - Beauty and the Beast (TV series)

Beauty and the Beast is an American television series which first aired on CBS in 1987. Creator Ron Koslow's updated version of the fairy tale has a double focus: the relationship between Vincent (Ron Perlman), a mythic, noble man-beast, and his Catherine (Linda Hamilton), a savvy assistant District attorney in New York; and a secret Utopian community of social outcasts living in a subterranean sanctuary. Through an empathic bond, Vincent senses Catherine's emotions, and becomes her guardian. The series follows the developing relationship between the characters and the division between New York and the hidden world beneath it. In a twist from the original tale, however, this "beast" does not transform into society's idea of beauty after gaining the love of Catherine. Rather, Vincent's inner beauty is allowed to remain the focus of who he is, and it is Catherine's life which transforms from her relationship to Vincent. Vincent's makeup was devised by veteran Hollywood makeup artist Rick Baker.

1 When they killed off Catherine's character. They should have just ended the show with her giving up her DA job and moving into the underground community with Vincent. -- Submitted By: (SilverFang) on November 4, 2012, 8:47 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
2 An ambitious concept. Ron Perlman was a credible Beast, notwithstanding all his oh-so-noble philosophizing and so on. I could never understand why the subterranean community didn't simply pack up and move to some remote rural environment - perhaps the Catskills or Adirondacks - where they could live without the sorts of hassles to which they were subjected in NYC. Were they just too wimpy to survive out in the country? -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on May 23, 2011, 1:14 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 Though I found it to be boring and flaky even back then, I thought it would have worked better as a single TV movie instead of making it into a series because there were only so many variations of the same plot before it became repetetive and ran out of steam. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on October 21, 2010, 5:02 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote

5 I barely remember this show, but I do remember being utterly dumbfounded hearing that they killed off Linda Hamilton's character-- the titular "Beauty"! The only people that watched this show were middle-aged women that wanted to see the romance between her and Vincent, and they threw it all away just for a cash-grab third season. I remember joking, "Are they going to rename the show to just 'Beast'?" -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on October 20, 2010, 9:33 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
6 Honey, they weren't losers. They'd just encountered enough "men" like you to know that the last thing they wanted was to find another one. -- Submitted By: (elainewood) on October 20, 2010, 11:57 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
7 this show catered to loser "cat ladies" who were single and never going to find a man. -- Submitted By: (VeritechRyan) on October 19, 2010, 11:49 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
